I jus wondered if any1 can relate to this....
 
Not liking supermarkets or crowded places... sometimes crowded places make me feel overwhelmed with information til i feel im gona burst n i jus need to get out of ther.
 
Not liking big grps of ppl..... if ther a grp of more than 5 ppl sometimes I wil go find somwher i can go sit down, I cant explain  this but big grps of ppl freak me out, its like i cant say wht i want bcoz som1 else is talking.
 
Feeling your a different person 1 day to the next... sort of rite now really but i go to sleep not knowing if im gona wake up in an anxiety go to work feeling tired making alot of mistakes or wether im gonna wake up happy n have an amazing happy time, its each day im a completely different person.
 
Comfortable routine...... I find myself finding comfort in routine I goto a shop i will buy the same sandwich, if i goto a pub the same drink... I will sit on the same seat in the train etc... e.g I go to shop called CJs always get goats cheese baguette but if i goto bellas i will always get a tuna mayonaisee baguette there is no reason y i dont buy a tuna baguette at CJ's other than it wud feel weird too.

I can relate to all of this, especially the part about feeling like a different person 1 day to the next. Some days I feel little or no anxiety and am happy, outgoing and on top of it at work and other days I am anxious and feel withdrawn and insecure. Just hang in there. I recently started seeing a D.O. who has me taking medical grade B-vitamins and multivitamins and I've noticed some improvement in my symptoms. She said the vitamins I'd been taking in the store were not absorbing properly (because they were synthetic) and that's why I was deficient in Vitamin B even though I was taking it every day. I still get anxiety but I feel like I'm stronger underneath it all or something. Like the anxiety is there, but I can tell it to just be quiet and I can go on with my day. I'm feeling more "with it" as well, like I'm actually fully here on a moment to moment basis. Are you taking any meds or B-vitamins? Or Magnesium?

I think this is something all people do not just people with anxiety. I just like to order the same thing as they are my favorites and I am not good at taking a chance on a food or store I don't care for.

Just llike people by the same brand of cars, or have apreference to choosing the same colors in clothes.

Just my 2 cents............and red is my favorite color........... devil

I know what you mean and do the same thing. BUT when i'm feeling good, crowds and stuff don't bother me at all. When i'm in an anxious state, i try and do all the same things (comfort in habit) that I feel are easy and safe. So when i go get my sandwich at lunch, i don't have more anxiety cause i've been into the place a lot and i know the routine.

I also get the over stimulus stuff. Like being in a crowd and it being to loud. Or being outside and it being to bright. Or being on the bus and it being to crowded. I get overwhelmed and have to retreat to being alone. I fined comfort in being alone sometimes or just around one or two friends...

Anyways, i can totally relate.

Crowds used to make me really nervous also... I will have to see if they still do that to me. I have not noticed it lately but I am on different meds.

I do understand how you feel though

Crowds really agitate me. There's a sense of being confined. I also get kind of angry when I'm trying to get to something and lots of other people aren't paying any attention to anyone else around them and are blocking the way.

Hey badfish,
I have been having the heart palpataions and dizziness plus all the other symptoms but I am not as anxious as usuall. I am more depressed than anxious. I dont know why i still get the symptoms when I'm not anxious. I was getting worried that my heart was giving out or something. Hopefully someone will come along with some good advice for both of us. What meds are you on? I'm on 40mgs of Paxil (generic) a day. I also take OTC sleep meds at night or I would never sleep. Maybe it's something about the meds???? Hope we get some answers on this one. It is very strange.
